The Community Cares Partners (CCP) has emergency rental assistance for Oklahoma residents.
The funding is only for rent and utilities (internet access such as Cox counts as a utility). Most of the funding must go to households that are at 80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI) or below and a large portion of that funding must go to households at 50 percent or below.
AMI is calculated and release every year by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The program goes live next week and may be accessed at:
Applications for the program open Monday, March 15.
CCP is a program of the Communities Foundation of America, which assists individuals facing housing crisis and eviction because of lost wages or hardship from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2020, CCP provided more than $21 million in rent, utility and other assistance to 5,600 households and 1,400 landlords in Oklahoma.
To see if you qualify for the program, visit www.okccp.org. Provide all supporting documents, including a copy of your driver’s license or other legal form of identification, utility bills, lease and income or unemployment information.
CCP will review your application and notify you of your status. If you qualify, CCP will work with your landlord and/or utility companies to pay your bills. You will be notified of any payments made on your behalf.
